Special Olympics and the NFL have established a longstanding and strong relationship which enables NFL players to serve their communities while furthering the push for inclusion.
Over the past few years seasons, NFL stars past and present have contributed to Special Olympics initiatives through community engagement, fundraising, becoming ambassadors and leading athletic clinics.
Some of the NFL’s biggest stars have taken to social media to share their excitement about being engaged with Special Olympics.
Over 7,000 @SpecialOlympics athletes are ready to go for gold at @WorldGamesAD, over 200 of them representing @SpecialOlympicsUSA. Share this post to let them know you will be rooting for them as they compete on the global stage! #Cheers4Champions #Cheer4USA— Baker Mayfield (@bakermayfield) March 14, 2019
